AddressBase® Islands delivers the detail for Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands which you find in AddressBase Plus and AddressBase Premium.
For any major business that offers household services nationwide, taking AddressBase Islands means you have consistent property information for Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man on tap from a single source.
In the busy call centre environment, your staff will always get results no matter where the address is located. And because our data’s regularly updated, your records will be more reliable, too.
Boost your marketing ROI. AddressBase Islands means you can run successful truly national campaigns – or build awareness in new markets, targeting households in properties converted into flats, for example.
The Plus specification of AddressBase Islands delivers local authority addresses, such as church halls and community centres. It also lets you find out about any building thanks to our address classifications.
AddressBase Islands Premium builds on Plus, adding property lifecycle information – along with alternative addresses. This helps you plan the roll-out of new services, such as high-speed broadband, and prevent fraud.
We offer the same style of licence for AddressBase Islands as existing AddressBase products. This ensures you can use your AddressBase Islands data in a consistent way across the United Kingdom and Crown Dependencies.

What are the differences between the two AddressBase Islands products?
There are two AddressBase Islands products: AddressBase Plus Islands and AddressBase Premium Islands.
AddressBase Plus Islands contains current properties including addresses sourced from Local Authorities, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail, all provided with an UPRN (Unique Property Reference Number), for Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.The product enables the end-user to locate an address or property on a map using either X, Y coordinates supplied on a British National Grid or Latitude and Longitude coordinates provided on an ETRS89 projection.
AddressBase Premium Islands provides the most detailed view of an address and its lifecycle for Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. It has more records than AddressBase Plus Islands as it provides all the information relating to an address or property from creation to retirement.The product contains Local Authority, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail addresses. This includes provisional addresses (proposed planning developments), and historic information (demolished properties) where available.
Ordnance Survey addresses are added to the AddressBase Premium Islands product where necessary to ensure the schema meets the core AddressBase products.
Do the Islands products contain Royal Mail's Postcode Address File?
Yes, this is a vital component of both Islands products. Royal Mail information will therefore be present where a match can be made between the Local Authority address and an address from Royal Mail.
Will commercial customers have to pay Royal Mail royalties separately?
Royal Mail royalties are included into the licence fee if you are already a Great Britain AddressBase product customer.
Additional Royal Mail royalties will apply if you aren't an existing Great Britain customer.
